1936 Horizontal action photo of Detroit Tigers Hall of Famer Al Simmons as he watches the ball sail away in spring training in St. Petersburg. This is a detailed, almost panoramic action photo of one of the most underrated players of all time that captures him with a cool stadium backdrop making for a fantastic piece of baseball history. Issued by the International News and stamp on the back with a hand written note and date on the back, this is an image we have never seen before. The photo presents beautifully with note to some creasing on the upper left and some artistic training from editorial use. NOTE: 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this photograph will go to charity. The organization is called Nations United Soccer which helps immigrants assimilate to American culture through sports.
